These are the cords that make my computer and peripherals work. Used the S50 in macro mode, and fiddled with Curves and Sharp.

You know, this really isn't all that bad. Before reading your notes, I had to stop and really look at it. While I never figured out what it was, it still held my attention. To me, if I photo makes me stop and really look, it has been successful.

I think the shot would've been better with another light source. Maybe a light off to the side? The main thing that jumps out are two little lights, that is all I can really make out. I also don't think this fits the challenge, you could get a pic like this during the day as well.

It is a bit out of focus, but that could be due to the lighting you have here. I would suggest trying out different light sources and seeing what works best. Play around with different angles of light and different kinds.

Hope that helps

Thank you to all those who gently told me my image was "too dark." When I readjusted my monitor I saw why. I guess I'd better do that little chore more often.

So much of the left foreground is lost and the visible elements are out of focus so I don't get pulled into the shot.

Hard to see what the subject is or what photo is trying to convey.

Unfortunately, this is too dark. I can't tell what it is I'm looking at other than it has green and red lights. Might try a little better lighting next time. Just my opinion though. :)

Behind the scenes of what? It is really hard to tell what I am looking at. A bit of brightening would help.

The parts of this image that are in sharp focus are in the upper left, but the composition and lighting are quite nice. I like how complex everything looks.

Technical: fits the challenge. Exposure & lighting don't offer enough info. Composition and focus appear to be good.

Personal: I see the attempt at mood, but on my monitor this is just too dark. The title and what little recognizable details are visible still don't give me enough info to discern what this is- it's interesting, but not very compelling to me.

My vote: 5
